Nintendo announced today that the 3DS has topped the five million mark in Japanese sales.
The system crossed the mark 52 weeks after its February 26, 2011 release, a record for Japanese hardware sales. The previous record holders had been DS with 56 weeks, and Game Boy Advance with 58 weeks.
The five million figure is actual sell-through, meaning sales from retailers to customers. The data was provided by Media Create.
Nintendo also provided a chart showing the sales trends for GBA, DS, Wii and 3DS.
